Another burglary attempt occurs at Del Mar Heights School

By Christina London and Megan Tevrizian, NBC San Diego
Police are investigating the two latest burglaries at North County schools.
Around 3:45 a.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 13, a break-in was reported at Del Mar Heights School on Boquita Drive. Then at 4:30 a.m., a similar burglary took place at Solana Santa Fe Elementary School on El Apajo Road in Fairbanks Ranch.

Del Mar Heights custodian Jose Casa told NBC 7 he believes someone broke the glass door to the computer lab with a hammer.
“I don’t think they went to school, but they’re definitely professionals,” Casa said.

In a twist of fate, the burglars got away empty-handed. Casa said the school just received new computers, but didn’t have time to put them out yet.
“It worked out for the best,” he said. “Otherwise, we’d be out more computers.”

The school plans to take new precautions, including keeping the lights on 24 hours, adding security guards and replacing doors with glass windows in them.

Meanwhile, 45 minutes later, the sheriff’s department received an alarm call from Solana Santa Fe Elementary. Officials discovered broken glass, but nothing was reported missing.

This is the third time Solana Santa Fe has been burglarized recently. Several other North County schools (Diegueno Country School, Ocean Air Elementary School and Sage Canyon School) have also been targeted in the past six weeks.
Apple computers were stolen in at least three of the burglaries.
So far, no arrests have been made. Authorities are investigating.
